Re: Old Star Diamond Saw Problems

Henry, once you are positive the blade is not warped, go to the belts, that being the easiest solution if that's the problem. Make sure they're not glazed. Might be a good idea to just change them. Another possibility is the blade mounting - that is it might be slightly cocked on the shaft, so slight you don't notice it. The deeper it runs into material they more it binds until, like you mentioned, it stops. Remove the blade and clean the shaft, blade, and all mounting hardware. A speck of rust or a tiny bit of grit could cause a problem. If blade mounting is the problem, and the blade had bound up once from running off center, it might now be warped if it wasn't before.
